AFFLECK, John (1832-1910) The Affleck families arrived from Scotland in 1855 and were pioneers of the timber industry in Warwick, Killarney Queensland from 1856 and were later to establish Glenmore Estate Swanfells District.

ANDREWS, Lyle (1916-52) was the son of Frank Andrews and Ada Medhurst. He married Dorothy Guy in 1937 and they lived in Montague Road, West End, Brisbane. Lyle was the father to three foster children – Lesley, Elaine and Norman. He worked as a truck driver, and in April 1952, while driving along the Ipswich to Rosewood Road at 3-Mile Bridge, his truck went through a guard rail and plunged 35 feet into the Bremer River below. He died instantly. It was fourth accident to occur on the bridge within the 12 months, with only Lyle`s proving fatal.

Share Your Story Here!

Do you have a relative or friend who you would like to see included in the Cemetery Residents – A page? We’d love to hear from you. Just send us their story via email, text or word document and we will format it for inclusion here (if it is relevant).We are interested in getting the stories of ‘ordinary’ people who have little-to-no presence in the history books. They do not need to have lived incredibly dramatic lives.

Please try and keep your submission within a 500 word limit per person. This is best achieved by not including too many dates or minor details of a person’s life. Images are welcome (maximum two per person).

Thank you.
